I made this last weekend for a brunch - not a bite left over. I only put pecans on 1/2 and did no syrup or powdered sugar on the top after - and it was more than sweet enough. I did spray my pan with Pam just to make sure nothing stuck (and it didn't).
putting brown sugar on the bottom is brilliant - I will do that next time. This is definitely on my re-make list. I might even do a 1/2 version for my kids for special occasions.
I took a tip from several of the other reviewers & sprinkled some brown sugar in the bottom, then pretty much followed the recipe, except that I left off the icing, thinking, correctly so, that the brown sugar & the final maple syrup would be more than enough in the sweet department! Absolutely great French toast & a very nice keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in the current Best of 2011 event]
This was certainly a decadent breakfast that everyone loved. I will definitely make it again (but not often because of the high fat/calorie content).
I agree that the butter on the bottom should have some brown sugar sprinkled in. I took another reviewer's suggestion to put the pecans in the bottom (for some reason none of my kids liked the pecans... so next time I'll leave pecans off half).
I used homemade cinnamon roll dough. I made two mistakes that I'll not repeat (I let the cinnamon rolls sit for a day in the pan and the filling made liquid in the pan. I also forgot to bring along the icing (I brought it on a trip).
Thanks for the recipe!
